The IAB would like to thank Q.1/2 for its input and reiterate
our commitment to coordinate with ITU-T TSB if there are
material changes planned that would affect .

For ourselves, we anticipate better coordination with ICANN
in the future, with respect to changes affecting .arpa (see
our correspondance to ICANN, from December 2005 [1]).

For your interest, we  have also enquired as to the state 
of deployment of DNSSEC on .arpa zone (see [2]). For 
we are about to send a similar enquiry to the RIPE NCC.  

We remain happy to hear any comment Q.1/2 might have on these 
or other topics.

Best regards,


Leslie Daigle
Chair, IAB.
